Season 10, Episode 13 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can and in this Wednesday show, Alex Kozora and I get right to discussing the Tuesday press conference given by Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin. Tomlin gave us quite a few talking points on Tuesday so Alex and I start going through them all one-by-one.
We also talk about what the Steelers first official injury report of 2019 might look like when it is released at the conclusion of Wednesday’s practice. We go over the status of injured safety Sean Davis and if Kameron Kelly might be an adequate Week 1 replacement if needed.
The Steelers initial 2019 53-man roster is still their 53-man roster so Alex and I discuss how that’s not something we’ve seen happen very often over the years.
How and how much will the Steelers use rookie inside linebacker Devin Bush in their Sunday night regular season opener against the New England Patriots? Alex and I discuss that topic in addition to talking about defensive tackle Javon Hargrave and his development as a sub package pass rusher over the years.
In the middle of this Wednesday show we are joined once again by Ben Volin, who covers the Patriots for the Boston Globe. We spend about 25 minutes with Ben previewing the 2019 Patriots and all that has transpired with the team since they won their sixth Super Bowl back in February. We spend a lot of time taking about the Patriots offense before moving over to the defensive side.
Before we let Ben go, we get his thoughts on the 2019 Steelers and what all has happened with the team since the end of the 2018 regular season. We also get Ben’s prediction for the Sunday night game between the Steelers and Patriots.
In the second half of this show, Alex and I continue to recap some of Tomlin’s Tuesday talking points that he provided us. Additionally, Alex and I discuss the possibility of the Steelers signing a tight end after Week 1 ends. We also go over the strengths and weaknesses of tight end Xavier Grimble. We close with some thoughts on the recent NFL Network interview with Ben Roethlisberger and how things are going currently with the Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown.
As usual, Alex and I answer a few email questions that we received from listeners since our last show posted to close out this episode.
As always, several other smaller talking points are mixed in throughout the show that are not highlighted here in this post.
